One of SwiftKey's most commonly sought after features is to learn – or not learn – when typing certain words or phrases. There are a variety of cases where you'd prefer that common or rare words don't appear in your candidate predictions. This may be the case while working on a specific short term project at work or school, when chatting in a game or forum app, and even when shopping online. Incognito mode addresses these scenarios.
To switch on Incognito mode:
- Open up a messaging or SMS app, and tap into the text entry field
- Open the Toolbar with the '+' icon (if not already open), then tap the Settings cog
- Press 'incognito'. This will initiate Incognito mode (your keyboard will turn black) and switch learning off
- To switch learning back on, open Toolbar > Settings and press 'incognito' once more.
From SwiftKey 7.2.2 onwards your keyboard will automatically switch to Incognito mode when it detects either of the following:
- A private browsing session in your browser
- A text field marked as private or sensitive (e.g. when using Telegram's "Secret Chat")
